Japan med school to admit dozens of unfairly rejected women

TOKYO — A Japanese medical university that acknowledged systematically discriminating against female applicants announced Wednesday plans to accept more than 60 who were unfairly rejected over the past two years.

The discriminatory policy at Tokyo Medical University surfaced earlier this year, triggering outrage. The school acknowledged in August that it has been reducing female applicants’ entrance exam scores for years to keep the numbers of female students low.
